New Cap 1 card

I got my first pre-approval letter and applied for a Cap 1 card yesterday. Got approved; not sure what the CL will be? Are they generous these days? I'm assuming not... people here seem to be saying CLIs are tough from them now. The question is, can you get other credit from the easily? Maybe this belongs on another forum, but do they have any history of extending an auto loan to someone they offer a $0 AF platinum card to? I am getting a car soon and would rather finance it and am looking for a way to walk in with a check rather than do financing at the dealer.

Re: New Cap 1 card

Congrats:smileyvery-happy: If you don't mind me asking, what was your scores when you applied. I applied last Sunday and Monday they was asking for proof of SS# and Address. Then today the automated system is stating "They have received my app and I will be notified by May 9, 2010" and at the end of the prompt they throw in there " This is all the automated system or representatives know at this time".  My scores was 641 EQ and 614 TU, but after today when I pulled my FICO TU had gone to 629.

 

How cold can a  computer be.... No backdoor access or nothing. I think I'm being "DENIED"

 

 


Starting Score: 509
Current Score: 652 EQ 649TU
Goal Score: 700

Re: New Cap 1 card

According to Credit Karma, my TU has been 617. The real FICO was a little higher. Like you, my Equifax was higher and my Experian was lower. I have limited credit but one issue that is keeping my score down from 4-5 years ago. Other than that, I have 100% on-time payments and low utilization the last three years on my cards and on a car loan I paid off.

myFICO is the consumer division of FICO. Since its introduction 20 years ago, the FICO® Score has become a global standard for measuring credit risk in the banking, mortgage, credit card, auto and retail industries. 90 of the top 100 largest U.S. financial institutions use the FICO Score to make consumer credit decisions.
